will john kerry differ from hillary clinton as secretary of state? assuming he is confirmed. first, we caught up with singer john legend at the inauguration and asked what it is he wants to see from president obama in his second term. >> i think the next four years we still have to worry a lot about unemployment. unemployment is still too high, too many people don't have opportunities that need it, and i think that's something the president still needs to work on even though everyone is talking about the deficit right now. i think washington needs to be focused on getting more people back to work.

must be ready for it. joining me now is congressman john larson. democrat from connecticut. thanks for coming on the show tonight. >> great to be with you, rev. >> congressman, let me start by asking are you pleased with what we're hearing about the president's plan tomorrow? >> the president has shown incredible strength with regard to this, as you know. his trip to connecticut in which he spoke to us directly about this probably being december 14th in newtown, the worst day of his presidency. and to the very core of his marrow, this has impacted him. and he has resolved to act on behalf of america's children and in the interest of our safety. he would like for congress to respond and i'm sure the vice president has outlined a very constructive, common sense, pragmatic solutions. but if congress cannot act, i'm heartened be i the fact that the president said he will take executive action. there's a number of things i implore him to do under executive actions that are long overdue. but we know the resolve of this president. we hope republicans and the nra come to the table around a

, driaan milbank. have you seen this man? his name is john boehner. he was last seen in washington when he was re-elected speaker of the house. there are reports he and the house gop are at an annual retreat in williamsburg, yet conservatives like hugh hewitt are calling him a milk carton republican because he's gone missing on several very important debates. do you know where he is? >> you know, i have not personally seen this man, john boehner, but i have heard of him. i know who he is vaguely. i think he's the guy that had the most miserable, unpleasant speakership in the history of the republic, and it was because he had these conservative freshmen who came in all excited to undo the government, and they didn't understand that as speaker his job is to not undo the government. so he's had this problem where he can't please conservatives like hugh hewitt because they want him to champion real conservative principles but he can't get re-elected in his district, and republicans can't win on a national level if they champion those same values. i think right now boehner has chosen to

years. we have to keep that in account. >> in his later years he was almost killed by john hinckley. >> all through his presidency he opposed gun control. that's my point. senator j. rockefeller on the other side of the aisle owns an ar-15. we talked to many legislators which own those type of firearms. that's the very point. these are guns which are commonly owned. men and women would want to use these types of firearms to protect their homes. they have much less fire power than your average deer rifle. >> i want to challenge also your polling data, because the pugh poll said 57% of americans, a clear majority, oppose having armed guards in schools. >> this was gallup from last month. you can check that out. >> depends how the question is asked. >> yes, it does. pugh has been well known for that. gallup calls it straight. what do you think is the most important problem facing the country, this was an open ended question at the top, economy in general at 21%, goes down to the federal budget deficit, dissatisfaction with government, unemployment, taxes, all the way at the bottom is g

turn to john nichols, washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine. and john, "the nation" magazine was so impressed with the speech today that there was a lot of rewriting going on. >> yep. and i sometimes have to do a lot of that rewriting. >> remarkably progressive today? >> yeah, it was. we were struck by it. we set a high standard for this president. we don't let him off the hook when we disagree with him. we have editorialized critically about him. but i think there was a pretty strong sense today that not just on domestic policy, but even on some foreign policy, he moved. sometimes the criticism was he kept a little too much of bush, this was a breaking point. a lot of what lingered, some of the people, some of the policies seem to be pushed back now. >> was this the speech that liberals have been waiting for? >> sure it was. >> and now is it the foundation for the next several years? >> well, barack obama is a complicated man. we have to be honest about him. >> he is a deal maker. >> yeah, he is. and he is also a mediator. he really does believe in trying to bring
